EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE
ROTTERDAM, GRONINGEN & LEEUWARDEN 2018
The trip combines two regions in the Netherlands: southern Holland and northern Friesland. From the port city of Rotterdam, heterogeneous and flooded with architecture, it's off to Groningen, where traditional Dutch architecture is reinterpreted on the basis of innovative projects. The third destination of this journey is the European Capital of Culture Leeuwarden, where mainly urban redevelopments implement new dynamism to the center.
With numerous projects, Leeuwarden 2018 presents itself as the European Capital of Culture 2018 and thus offers insights into Frisian culture and recent urban development in addition to architecture.
The guided tours focus on urban planning, urban history, contemporary architecture, social housing and the profanation of church buildings in the Netherlands.
